Iron is a metal in the first transition series. Iron sputtering target belongs to ferromagnetic target and are often used in information stroage industry. The alloy sputtering targets are widely used for magnetic recording. Iron can be combined with some rare earth metals to form migrating rare earth metal sputtering targets, such as Tb-Fe-Co, Nd-Dy-Fe-Co, Ga-Tb-Fe-Co. Those sputtering targets are commonly applicated as optcial disc materials.
